SOUTH BEND, Ind. – With most schools closed due to COVID-19, seniors are worried they will miss out on a proper graduation ceremony. South Bend schools superintendent Todd Cummings has been speaking with seniors to get their input about how to handle the situation.
Seniors have expressed interest in having a limited attendance ceremony or even a virtual graduation now and then returning for an in-person event in 2021.
“This is an extraordinary time and so to be able to have them have a say in what their graduation looks like is really powerful and it’s theirs and we want to make sure that we honor that,” said Cummings.
Nothing has been finalized yet, but for now graduation is not cancelled.
